Another wonderful thing about Catalina Island is that about 88% of the Island was donated to the Catalina Island Conservancy. These are photos I took while hiking around the ‘airport in the sky’ near the top of the Island. I got more photos on a camera (these are from my phone) - even one of Bison! I’ll see when I can load those if I ever get to it! :) There are many great camping and hiking areas here for the nature lover in all of us. (OK, most of us.)
Locks I encountered on another recent hike. If people really want to go there…. :) Six ..no, Seven locks and finally a string is used to close the gate? :)
View from high up on Pine Ridge Trail in Big Sur, CA - I hiked 20 + miles to/from Sykes camp / hot springs there!
I went back to Pinnacles National Monument again, here are some of the wild flower pics I took there. Names that I know = Red Thistle, Elegant Clarkia (pink/ purple), Sticky Monkey Flower (rock stack pic), pic w/ pink stalk flower almost looks like a snap-dragon but IDK what it is (and Added) California Buckeye flower w/ Bee! I think that many people have forgotten how important it is to get outside and commune with nature. It helps you realize we are just a part of a chain! :)

This is a pic of a little cutie snake in Prunedale, CA that I encountered yesterday. It is a Sharp Tailed Snake, or Contia Tenuis. They are smallest snake around here supposedly— being 3-4” as babies and growing only as large as 18”! They eat slugs/ snails/ bugs, Info I looked up says they are often mistaken for worms! ..Awwwe…
